Tell Target: Don't Give in to Bullies! Have Pride in the Consumer Market for LGBTQ+ Gear

Republicans, and their allies in the Proud Boys and Moms for Liberty (both designated as “anti-government extremist” groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center) are waging war on acceptance and diversity, and we must fight it.

After right-wing extremists posted videos and threats of violence against employees of Target for selling t-shirts with rainbows and other pro-LGBTQ+ themes for kids, Target buckled in fear and removed some LGBTQ+ gear from shelves. This success emboldened the right-wing hate machine and Republican Attorneys General in seven states are now trying to erase and permanently abolish all LGBTQ+ apparel from Target.  

The Republican Attorneys General from Indiana, Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and South Carolina are using obscenity laws to threaten Target claiming Pride merchandise is illegal and harmful to children in their states.

This is bigger than just Target.

These Republican bigots are attempting to set a dangerous precedent that will intimidate and influence all corporate behavior to fit their narrow-minded view of the world.

Republicans’ regressive approach harkens back to a time when marginalized communities were silenced and erased, hindering progress and fostering a culture of fear and exclusion. It is a real-life manifestation of the harmful consequences that arise when intolerance and ignorance guide policy-making, ultimately hindering the pursuit of equality and justice for all.

That’s why Target's LGBTQ+ merchandise isn't just apparel; it's a powerful symbol of acceptance, inclusion, and celebration and to cede ground to these bullies would be to cede ground on the principles of diversity and equality.

The legality of Target's actions is not in question. These products are not obscene and no court would rule in favor of this blatantly discriminate position. That’s exactly why these bigoted Attorneys General sent a letter, instead of filing actual charges against Target.

The real issue is the right to celebrate and acknowledge the existence of the LGBTQ+ community openly. It isn't about protection -- it's about prejudice and hate. This is an attempt to strong-arm a major corporation into sidelining the LGBTQ+ community and those that support them.

The problem is it might work. Target needs to hear from us.

Let's show Target that we support their commitment to diversity. We need to show these Republican AGs, loud and clear, that the era of bullying corporations into discriminatory practices is over.

Increase Voter Turnout: Vote at the movies!

Low voter turnout is a persistent issue that plagues our democracy. Year after year, Republicans, both in Congress and at the state level, work to suppress the vote by limiting access especially to young people and communities or color. This has often resulted in a disappointing trend of disengagement from the electoral process.

This lack of participation undermines the very essence of democracy, as decisions are made by a smaller subset of the population, leaving out diverse perspectives and interests. To safeguard the integrity of our democratic system, we must proactively seek ways to encourage more individuals to exercise their right to vote.

One practical solution is the introduction of secure ballot drop boxes. Drop boxes are designed to provide a secure and convenient method for voters to submit their ballots anytime of day. By placing ballot boxes at strategic locations, we can remove barriers that prevent individuals from casting their votes.

In fact, the success of secure ballot drop boxes has already been demonstrated in various, accessible public spaces like libraries, churches, and grocery stores -- ensuring that people can drop off their ballots at their convenience. They have proven to be highly efficient and have boosted voter participation by offering an alternative to traditional methods of casting a vote.

It’s time to leverage the popularity and accessibility of movie theaters as locations for secure ballot drop boxes too. Movie theaters are cultural hubs, frequented by a diverse range of individuals across different age groups and demographics. They offer extended night time operating hours beyond the traditional grocery store or church, making it easier for people to find a time that suits their schedule.

With more than 5,000 movie theaters nationwide, they are often situated in central areas, making them convenient for both urban and suburban residents.

A night out at the movies could be transformed into an opportunity for civic participation. By placing secure ballot drop boxes at these locations, we would be adding another convenient option for voters to return their ballots, effectively reducing barriers to voting.

This proposal might sound unconventional, but so was the idea of ballot drop boxes at grocery stores and libraries once upon a time. And with the recent rise in voter intimidation at ballot boxes, by placing them in more high traffic public locations, we make it much harder for right-wing extremists to block access and suppress the vote.

By adapting to our changing society and meeting voters where they are, we can create a more inclusive democracy and protect voters at the same time.

Think about the potential impact of this initiative. Imagine families, couples, and groups of friends, before enjoying a film together, taking a moment to drop off their vote. It's a beautiful synergy of leisure and responsibility, a testament to the democratic ethos of participation. "Vote at the Movies!" could become a powerful get-out-the-vote slogan, galvanizing a new generation of voters and reinvigorating those who may have become disillusioned with the political process.

Increased voter turnout is a goal we should all strive for because a more representative democracy benefits us all and ensures that a wider array of voices and perspectives are heard.
